Mediation is a positive way to resolve important disputes . The mediation process seeks to find a “win-win” solution for both parties who agree to work voluntarily for a mutually satisfying agreement. Successful mediation protects the relationship in the process of solving difficult family problems. Mediation services offered include: parenting time, minor decision making, elder care, and adult family conflicts involving step families, in-laws, and parent/adult children disputes.

In play therapy, toys are the child’s words and play is the child’s language (Landreth, 2002). Using play therapy, therapists help children learn more adaptive behaviors to improve emotional-modulation, resolve trauma, address social skill deficits, improve communication and problem solving. Play therapy provides an avenue for young children to express their experiences and feelings in a safe and neutral environment.

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing is an integrative form of therapy focusing on processing distressing events and memories, correcting distorted thinking styles, and eliminating negative emotions and behaviors caused by unresolved issues. EMDR uses an 8 phase treatment model aimed at the resolution of traumatic and adverse life experiences through the use of standardized set of procedures and clinical protocols.

Cognitive behavioral therapy identifies unhelpful patterns of thinking, behavior and emotional regulation.  Clients learn specific coping skills to change thought patterns and behaviors which lead to improved emotional states of being.

Dialectical behavioral therapy is a cognitive behavioral therapy approach that teaches skills including mindfulness, distress tolerance, interpersonal effectiveness and emotion regulation.

Telemental health provides counseling from a distance via online conferencing. The client and therapist are in two different locations using a secure interface for sessions.  The benefit to doing therapy remotely includes convenience and increased accessibility to services.  You simply need access to the internet and a private location.

There are several models of Clinical Supervision including developmental, psychotherapy based, and integrative models.  I follow most closely the developmental model.   Supervision moves from most directive to least directive as a counselor in training develops knowledge and increases their skill base.  Areas of supervision include:

  • intervention
  • skills competence
  • assessment techniques
  • interpersonal assessment
  • client conceptualization
  • individual differences
  • theoretical orientation
  • treatment goals and plans
  • professional ethics

Supervision is tailored to meet the needs of each counselor’s experience and skill level.
